POTTING SHED Bathrooms were designed to take space within individual tescelated modules. Frosted walls give the impression of their floating, while shelving and interier paneling house lighting directed down from a postion above facilities.

IMMERSION POOL The first level of design was to manipulate the topography of the site, a large, sloped field bellow a seminary, according to a natural artifact found on the site. An immersion pool was then placed within this context, taking inspiration for its form from the biased topography and the program.

LIGHT, STRUCTRE, AND SHADOWS

A single module was onceived to manipulate light and shadows. Its triangular surfaces fold inward and outward, creating an aperture that narrows to one end. Struts placed on the inside compose its structure and prevent it from collapsing on itself.

TESSELLATED PARK

Children’s park build on De Mun site in St. Louis. Altenating triangles of different scales formed from the unrolled surfaces of the inhabitable modules control the flow of traffic through the park; the modules themselves dictate the experience of each space, with programs ranging from office buildings to bathrooms.

CONTAINED ECOSYSTEM Terrarium was constructed to house umbrella palm plant and fairy moss azolla. The container uses its form to allow light to access the water surface moss while creating space for the umbrella plant to grow directly above.
